A research company in Israel has developed batteries that are powered by potatoes. Yissum Research Development Company Ltd has created a solid organic electric battery using treated potatoes which is far more economical than commercial batteries or kerosene lamps. The battery, which was made with zinc, copper electrodes and a slice of boiled potato, can potentially provide an inexpensive solution to the underdeveloped regions of the world that lack infrastructure for electricity.
